um. yes, i was very clear, i see.. :-|
my thought was:
lets say we have
with a sub-layout for global hotkeys,
an area for text and
another sub-layout with an image and some hotkeys for it
a layout has a pane with some faces.
we can check if a face is in a pane with find.
so we can use that for grouping:
if find global-hotkeys/pane face-with-hotkey[do-it]
if not editing-text [do-it]
;we are editing, ignore (image-hotkeys and co.)
if the event-handler knows the face with the hotkey.
i hope it does?
usually i have a button-menu with hotkeys
which is global.
i thought i could use a panel for it.
now i prefer an explicit block with this faces.
faces-blocks could be better than hotkey-blocks
because faces can be named?
